Wily trout await you in the legendary fly-fishing waters of Yellowstone National Park. Learn how to catch them with classic fly-fishing techniques that you learn on dry land, and further refine on the park’s streams and rivers. You’ll find out how to select and set up the right equipment as well as learn the proper fundamentals of casting and presentation. On the water, you'll look beneath the surface to examine the world of trout and the aquatic insects on which they depend. Above the surface we'll examine the stream ecosystem and learn to "read" the water to understand where and how to present your fly. Learn skills and see Yellowstone up close—through an angler's eyes.

Lodging Options:

  • Private Cabin Single: A private cabin for yourself
  • Private Cabin Double: A private cabin for yourself and one other participant of your choice
